Thursday night's non-conference girls basketball game was a roller coaster ride with an up-tempo, high energy style and plenty of ups and downs throughout the game but ultimately Kenosha Christian Life held on for a 64-61 victory against the T-Wolves. The Lady Wolves found themselves in a deep hole down 25 at one point. The active full-court pressure and quick strikes from beyond the 3-point arc got them back into it though. Junior Rachel Scholz led the way with 16 points while, sophomore Lauren Weiss chipped in 15. 28 of the 31 points from the tandem came in the second half runs that closed the Eagles lead to only one with less than a minute remaining. Kenosha Christian held on down the stretch due to clutch free-throw shooting, going 17-17 in the game and 10-10 in the fourth. Living Word struggled to find their touch offensively shooting only 14 of 40 from behind the 3-point arc. Living Word kicks off the conference season next Tuesday against University School of Milwaukee.
